The first 2 chapters are incredible. They describe the rather clueless western missionary family that get caught on the front lines of battle during the revolution. The rest of the book is more tame, but holds interest as they are one of the few westerners (and proseltizying Christians to boot) who remain and thrive in the new regime. It's a good case study of adapting to circumstances while staying true to principle.
